Christmas event lights up Clyde’s main street
The community Christmas event, now in its third year, has lots of exciting entertainment and activities organised for the night, starting with Santa’s visit at 8.30pm, the Clyde School Choir from 9pm, carol singing from 9.40pm and concluding with the annual lighting of the Christmas lights at 10pm.
Clyde on Sunday group member Mel Eade says the event is always a very social community occasion and as per last year’s event, two bagpipers will pipe the crowd down the main street while the lights are turned on.
There will be mulled wine, juice, truffles and saveloys available for gold coin donations on the night and a large gingerbread house will also be up for auction, courtesy of Heidi of the Antique Lodge Motel.
This year, Christmas in Clyde are proud to present an exciting light projection show by former local and up and coming artist Jon Thom.
Jon, a former Clyde resident now based in Dunedin, will present photos and images of Clyde’s early days, interspersed with artworks of pupils of Clyde School that will be projected on to the Masonic Lodge.
The light show will continue to run for a month.
Christmas in Clyde will be held on Thursday, December 17 from 8.30pm on the Oliver’s restaurant front lawn, Clyde.
